Demonstrating his potent force in the race for California’s 46th Congressional District seat, today former State Senator Lou Correa collected a major statewide endorsement from California’s State Treasurer John Chiang.

In announcing his support of former Senator Lou Correa, California’s State Treasurer John Chiang remarked:

“Former State Senator Lou Correa understands the importance of making sure that government is both efficient and effective, and that precious taxpayer dollars should be protected and used wisely. And, as someone with deep ties to the 46th Congressional District, having served in both local and state government for the region, he has proven himself as a dedicated leader on behalf of Orange County. I believe he has the experience and the skills to be a successful representative in Congress. I’m pleased to endorse Lou Correa.” Responding to news of the endorsement, former State Senator Lou Correa released the following statement: “State Treasurer John Chiang’s endorsement means a real lot to me. It also serves as evidence of my resolve to safeguard hard working Californians’ taxpayer dollars and to make sure these resources are used to protect our communities and to improve our quality of life. I look forward to working with Treasurer Chiang on my campaign in the months ahead.”

In addition to today’s announcement, former Senator Correa has raked-in endorsements from California’s Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson, Congressional Hispanic Caucus Chair and Congresswoman Linda Sánchez, as well as the Congressional Hispanic Caucus’ fundraising arm BOLD PAC.

Correa served in the California State Senate, representing the 34th District, from 2006- 2014 and served the cities of Anaheim, Buena Park, Fullerton, Garden Grove, Santa Ana, Stanton and Westminster. Prior to the Senate, he served on the Orange County Board of Supervisors representing the 1st District.

    This is a HUGE endorsement for Jose Louis Correa. Most Dem’s like and respect his MODERATION.

    A huge blow to the leftist EXTREMISTS in the OC DEM. But they also hold such diminishing power it’s meaningless (thanks Greg Diamond).
    Joe Dunn seems like Grandpa Joe.
    Jordan Brandman the up and comer.
    Lou Correa A leader.
    Bao Nguyen An upward mobile wannabee who doesn’t want earn his spot.

    Lou is the guy to beat.

    The problem is will Lou’s base come out on primary and vote? In 2012, some precincts in SantAna had turnout of 9-11%. Anaheim and Orange will be out in force. Santa Ana votes strong in a presidential year general election, not a primary election.

      I am told I was “pounded” by another at OJB, someone named “Ricardo Toro”, a man I have never met, but hope to. Maybe I can speak some sense into is filthy racist soul.

      On Point…The DPOC has failed miserably in recent history at voter outreach. We have bashed Alex to death, perhaps unfairly, somebody took notice and sent the kid to Boston and Phily. (Note to ALEX FLORES: Get a college degree!) Lou need to mobilize, Jeff’s Gay vote is 5% (2.66% diluted) the Viet unknown, it is a weak Asian district despite claims.

      Joe Dunn’s institutional support will rely on Jon and Sara (his kids) top bring back the youth vote. WSTE OF $$$$. (JOSE LUISWIFE looks a LOT better than Millionare Diane Dunn…. TAKE A PICTUE OF DUNN’S MANSION!)

      This race be decided deep and rich and tilted after Labor Day2016.

        You hope to meet Ricardo Toro, but never me or Greg. You probably think that Ricardo is fictional too. Gustavo and Gabriel used to think that too, because his name sounds made up. He is not.

        I think he would be happy to meet you, “Vasquez.” You could write this “filthy racist” man at ric0519@hotmail.com

        Not holding my breath…

          I was told, he, Richard Toro like Greg Diamond attacked me. I understand Greg, he is borderline insane and does nothing all day but play silly games on the internet in the name of activism, I consider Greg Diamond, like many in the DPOC to be an extremist of little use to the party any longer and frankly a clown. Some years ago I flew commercially a lot to auto auctions, It was there that I heard the best advise ever: “put your mask on FIRST before trying to help others”, Crazy Greg would be well served to follow this advise. His personal life appears to be a hot mess, from what I read. As for you,I know (“knew”) little of you except for the derogatory comments which I read (both about and from you), I have little or know desire to meet you.
          As for Dick Toro, if he would have kept his mouth shut, we wouldn’t be having this conversation.

            Hello Mr Vasquez,

            Vern mentioned to me that you are very upset at me. I understand it is due to a reference I made about you. It seems that you don’t read the OJB so let me tell you what I said :

            “Dan C will have another hit piece (on you and by getting a high number of comments). I will even suggest a title : OJB-Censortorpia! Tardif, Clark and Vasquez will have a ball. BTW give them the time when you were blocked, 3:15 AM? ”

            My apologies if this made you upset .

            Now I am very interested in knowing why you think I am “filthy racist soul”. The only reference that it comes to my mind is the reaction of Mr Tardiff about a post I wrote called “Dios los Cria y El Diablo los Junta”.

            We should get together, drink a Yerba Mate, and talk things over.

            Saludos. Ricardo.

              Ricardo, I got the impression from that piece you hate white people for being white. Mr. Tardiff, who has a Mexican wife, called you out on it. You’re response was, I recall, weak sauce.

          • September 13, 2015 at 8:12 pm

            I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to imply that I or Greg want to meet you either, I was just noting that you expressed an interest in meeting Ricardo even though you think he’s a filthy racist. And I was postulating that that’s because you think he is a fictional character like you, and that you could meet on a fictional plane in, say, a short story, and maybe eventually a novel, and maybe even eventually be played by two actors in a buddy movie.

            But you’ll see that Ricardo is real, just like Gabriel and Gustavo came to. In fact if you really paid much attention to Anaheim events you would have seen him speaking at a lot of council meetings, and demonstrating at the occasional rally. But then, those are non-fictional.

            Ricardo tried four times to respond here, and just like Ryan, he can’t. I don’t know what’s wrong with your blog Dan. But here I am, a regular Miles Standish, passing along dirty racist Ricardo’s message to fictional Vasquez:

            “Hello Mr Vasquez,

            Vern mentioned to me that you are very upset at me. I understand it is due to a reference I made about you. It seems that you don’t read the OJB so let me tell you what I said :

            “Dan C will have another hit piece (on you and by getting a high number of comments). I will even suggest a title : OJB-Censortorpia! Tardif, Clark and Vasquez will have a ball. BTW give them the time when you were blocked, 3:15 AM? ”

            My apologies if this made you upset .

            Now I am very interested in knowing why you think I am “filthy racist soul”. The only reference that it comes to my mind is the reaction of Mr Tardiff about a post I wrote called “Dios los Cria y El Diablo los Junta”.

            We should get together, drink a Yerba Mate, and talk things over.

            Saludos. Ricardo.”

            Ricardo also expressed puzzlement over how he is “one of Dan’s best commenters” when he can’t even comment here.

              There was one comment from Ricardo and I approved it as soon as I could. Some of us work during the day Vern. There wasn’t four comments waiting

    Ricardo is one of my best readers! The DPOC’s voter outreach is just fine when you look at the rise in Democratic Party registration. The GOTV efforts by various candidates needs improvement and certain Party members with loud voices and blogs promoting Republican candidates over Democratic ones remains a problem. Serious, do Diamond or Nelson ever cheer for any Democrat the way they cheer for Tom Tait?

    Dunn is going to be Labor’s candidate. But he hasn’t won a race since 2002 and there’s a generation of voters who don’t know him or remember Enron at all. Labor so record over the past election cycles hasn’t been great either. John Leos, Julio Perez both heavily touted and both lost. If Correa is counting on Santa Ana voters to carry him, he’s going to have to work hard to get them to the polls on primary day.

    Any Democrat that prevails on primary day is better than any Republican in the race.

    Labor Day 2016 is next year, but as a practice, I don’t correct typos.
